SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — Commissioners are set to vote on spending nearly $3 million of American Rescue Plan money to help the homeless.
County officials said the number of people who are out on the streets was made worse by the pandemic.
The only emergency homeless shelter in Seminole County has about 115 beds for men, women and children in Seminole County.
The pandemic hurt them financially, but $2.8 million is expected to stabilize them so they can help more people who need it.
Commissioners are expected to approve that $2.8 million for the shelter next Tuesday at their meeting.
